18h UTC; THURSDAY, 23 MAY 2013: So where exactly is it written, pray, that renewable energy, and policies to encourage same, are deemed incompatible with ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe as one with Our National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations (all the while insisting that "every Nation is founded upon a Country [Landsbodem] allocted unto it by God")?
And talk about a poor use of rape analogy--to wit, Glenn Beck's using same vis-a-vis the non-scandal involving IRS overzealotry in reviewing applications seeking tax-exempt standing for certain "Tea Party," "9/12" and "patriot" movements claiming "social welfare organisation" exemptions solely to avoid donor disclosure.
Meanwhile, about the only jobs actually being "created" (if any) in states where "Tea Party"-influenced regimes hold high carnival, aside from those at Walmart (especially considering their notoriously high turnover rates which may eventually leave them no option but to turn to local sheltered workshops for the disabled as pis aller if bad gets to worse), are such from those promoting "work from home," "work online" and "network marketing" scams taking advantage of such who, know, have few realistically marketable job/career skills to begin with. Which can only get worse under an educational "reform" syllabus emphasising homeschooling as is itself based on apartheid South Africa's Christelik Nasionale Onderwys syllabus, placing idealised "values" and True Patriot Love Thou Dost In Us Command over core skills.
The which, know, makes them all the easier targets for "Tea Party" recruitment and exploitation.
In the immortal words of Stewie "Family Guy" Griffin, it looks as if Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is quickly becoming all the closer to being "exactly the kind of idiot you see at Taco Bell at one in the morning! The guy who just whiffed his way down the bar-skank ladder!" (And, more than likely, in an intemperate state, taking pains all the more to avoid "dropping hints" as could cause scandal and suddenly reduce the State of Wisconsin's sovereign debt rating to the edge of Junk.)
Memo to especially liquor bars in "shoobie trap" communities heading into the Memorial Day Long Weekend in the United States: New Jersey's Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, in a campaign code-named "Operation Swill," filed charges against 29 bars across The Garden State (including 13 TGI Friday's such) for Consumer Fraud and Deception by dispensing low-quality spirits from bottles which previously held high-end brands thereof, and charging consumers for the premium such. Helping such along: New technology available to investigators as can detect what's actually in the bottles of spirits behind the bar, distinguishing low-end brands from the more prestigious.
To paraphrase an old slogan for Wolf's Head Motor Oil, "it pays to be particular about what you're serving." (And in the interest of Social Responsibility, remember, too, that "moderation is true strength.")
No wonder the more homophobic Elmer Gantryites out there must be sitting glued to their PC's watching online videos (at least such as have yet to be removed from YouTube and suchlike for Glorifying Hate and even Glamourising Crime and Violence) of such displays of civil disorder, chaos and violence across France in recent days since same-gender marriage was legalised there last week, much of them by way of right-wing or otherwise militantly extreme organisations who see such as a Threat and Danger to French National Identity and Honour That Not Even Asterix Would Approach With a Three-Meter Pole; all, we may assume, in the interest of "research" and "inspiration" against the possibility of the Supreme Court overturning as much California's Proposition 8 ("Defence of Traditional Marriage") as the Federal "Defence of Marriage Act" (DoMA) when the final decisions in both cases are issued sometime next month.
(Including, for Luscious Glory, the self-slaughter of a prominent right-wing French historian upon the altar of Paris' Notre-Dame Cathedral, and in full view of some 1,500 people as were inside; said suicide, in effect, desecrating the Sanctity and Sachristy of one of Paris' more famous glories.)
And though teenage pregnancy rates may have seen a major drop in the United States, as per just-issued statistics, it's inevitable that the Former Confederacy should see the highest rates therefor. Which could easily be put down to "cultural heritage," to use a popular trope down that way among the ranks of "poor whiteism" as are especially prone to sexual promiscuity therein (as if they needed a defence therefor, Earl Pitts and Jeff Foxworthy notwithstanding).
In any event, seeing that the Memorial Day Long Weekend, the traditional and at once unofficial start of the summer season, is approaching in the United States, Your Correspondent feels it best to take a short hiatus therein from his blogging habit; he could certainly welcome the break. Hopefully, he should return to the auld routine next Tuesday; in the interim, though, he'd appreciate your patronage of the Online Mall and/or the Online Boutique, as:
- Your Correspondent can earn some money off your purchases, money he could certainly use (and then some) within measurable distance; and
- 9.11% of the commissions from your purchases generated by Your Correspondent will go towards Reduction of the American National Debt.
